Well you know the old saying, dont count your chickens before the eggs hatch? I guess I been counting to much. Ok here it is I was talking with Mike the other day that I noticed white smoke coming from tail pipe well she is making a piston slap (over fueling I think) because it aint valves tick I adjusted the valves twice today. 8 and 18 to 10 and 20 and to much noise coming from the hood. White smoke puff when I start. Had some old RV 275 so I took them down to have them pop tested and two good and four bad. Is there anybody on the planet with half the bad luck that I have? I anit scared to ask what next either.So anybody out there got some injectors I can use till mine get back. I just bought these injectors about two or three months ago DDP 50 hp.I hate to say it but these trucks suc, I had 4 hours for good running truck then it takes a dump.

God I wish I could just get this motor in my shop and test it and fix it. EDIT: That was a little rude, poorly worded on my part after a bad day, apolgies... I have a few spare sets of injectors, but with shipping you are going to be close to what you can get a used set for on ebay to your door. But if you are really in a bad way and have to run the truck, I'll help you out with some injectors to try, no problem. PM me if you want. I can also mail you some stuff to do a cylinder leak down test if you are so inclined...

--- Update to the previous post...

Don't run it until you do some diagnostics on it.... It could cost you a lot more money than you would lose having it down... You need to pressure check your cooling system... check cylinders for adequate compression.... but first, like you said, get some injectors some way some how, and see if that fixes it.

Why would you let him do that? Have you had it pressure checked and fluxed to see if it is even cracked? You would be throwing money away if you do, that is worth about 250 as a core if it's not cracked.

I dont know but I think it has to be cracked, how else would compression be getting into fuel tank? I know the copper washers could leak but I have had three sets of injectors in it in the last year. You would think it would stop it sooner or later. And as bad as it ran it got to be cracked. It atleast runs with out missing and surging, now and has a little better down low power than it had.Thanks

You still need to borrow a set of injectors? I have a stock set I can send out tommorow and you should get them saturday. I ran these in my truck for a week about a week ago in hopes of getting better mileage than my biggens but they didnt even do a mile better. They all popped off a little low but were all about the same (3500 psi) and they ran fine. Let me know
